I finished my tea-stained shibori pieces today. I used the tea stain as the base color, overdyeing/resisting using a dark indigo. The organza piece turned out quite beautifully:
However, the bamboo scarf looks distinctly…unbeautiful:
I hate the way that my little square resists DID NOT RESIST! All the lovely cream-colored tea dye went away. I believe I need to crank down the clamping even tighter, although it was amazingly tightly clamped, let me just say. I am going to re-work this piece–at this point, I can’t make it worse!
